George R. R. Martin on plans for 2021

While most of the HBO adaptation of his series has already run, Martin regularly updates his fans on Not a Blog about the status of the long-awaited sixth volume of "A Song Of Ice And Fire". In his last blog post, Martin was optimistic about the promising progress he had made in completing his novel over the past year: "I wrote hundreds of pages to THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020," wrote Martin. “The best year I've had at WOW since I started it.” However, he is not entirely sure why it went so well: “Maybe the isolation. Or maybe I just got on a lucky streak. Sometimes I also have a lucky streak. "

But fans shouldn't rejoice too soon. So Martin still has a lot of work to do: "But I have to keep going," added Martin. “I still have hundreds of pages to write to bring the novel to a satisfactory conclusion. That's what the year 2021 is for, I hope. ”So the most famous yet unfinished novel seems to be a long time coming.

He promises a different "Game of Thrones" degree

However, the author does not want to give out a precise deadline: "I will not make any predictions about when I will be finished ... Every time I do that, the a * holers on the Internet take this as a 'promise' and then longingly wait Crucify me when I miss the deadline. All I want to say is that I am hopeful. "

What is certain, however, is that the end of the book series will differ significantly from that of the series. The final season of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" disappointed quite a few fans. Most loyal viewers missed the sovereign storytelling of previous seasons and complained about numerous logic gaps. In addition, they were not satisfied with the development of some characters (for example Daenerys Targaryen) because it seemed implausible to them.
